Windows 8 low memory problems

About a month, I got a Samsung Series 5 touch screen Ultrabook with 4 GB memory, running Windows 8. Recently, I've been getting a lot of low memory notifications even with just Chrome browser up with a couple of tabs open and Spotify or Itunes. With my Windows 7 laptop (also with 4 GB memory), I have never received a low memory notification, and I've had 10 tabs open with a photo editor program, sometimes both spotify and itunes, and microsoft office.
In addition, Google Chrome crashes all the time. Luckily they save the tabs that were open but it gets pretty irritating if I'm in the middle of working on something.
Why is this happening on my new laptop? I'm not the most computer savvy, so when I go task manager and see that so much memory is being used, I'm not sure which programs are needed and which aren't.
